the outside corporate interests bankrolling question two 's the truth: every time a new charter school opens, it drains money from the existing public schools. that's 400 million just last year - according to the state's own data. which means real cuts to our kids - in arts, technology, ap classes, pre-school, bus service and more. that's why question two's opposed by the massachusetts pta and school committees all across the state.
4:45 am
doug: one last blast on the horn. cindy: can't see much of anything. the fog is thick. we have rain in the forecast. don't leave home without your umbrella and wet weather gear. a little bit of drizzle and light showers this morning. as we get into the afternoon, the rain chances are going up. into tonight as around on saturday. sunday is the dry day this weekend. we need the rainfall. you can see for the month of october, we've been doing okay. we're slightly above the average, but for the year, look at our deficit now. haven't showed you this in a while. it is up over 10 inches. so we will take this rainfall coming on in. you see the radar right now. not terribly active. a couple of light showers, drizzle, mist. so patchy areas of rain out there this morning. but the fog is widespread. visibility is running from worcester on into boston right
4:46 am
the cape and into southern new hampshire as well. so be mindful, that fog may slow you down this morning. 54 in worcester. 59 in boston. look at beverly, 60 degrees. 65 in plymouth, and it's a little bit humid. you can see where our weather is coming from. look at the motion here. everything is lifting from south to north. we've got this deep southerly flow that has brought in that low-level moisture, but a frontal boundary is focused to our west. much of the day, the focus of the real wet weather is going to stay across new york, pennsylvania, and up near the canadian border. what we will see with the southerly wind are the temperatures coming up despite all the clouds and the rain. it's going to be up around 70 degrees with that humidity through the afternoon. notice on futurecast, not a lot happening this morning, so during the morning hours, it is just that patchy fog and drizzle early on, but the rain will get heavier this afternoon, and there could be some downpours,
4:47 am
starting to see more showers popping up. look at this for your ride home, 5:00, 6:00, heavy downpours across the area. not everywhere, but where it is raining, it is going to be raining hard and you may hear a rumble of thunder within this as well. this goes until midnight. after midnight, i think the heaviest of the rain begins to lift on out, but we're left with a lot of clouds. temperatures tonight are holding in the 50's to the lower 60's, and this whole system is basically developing right on top of us. tomorrow morning sta o chillier air moves in, cold enough that saturday and sunday there will be snow in the northern mountains. the potential for rain on average is 1/2 inch to an inch. there will be locally higher amounts. saturday features mainly dry weather first thing in the morning, but one area of moisture is going to push through during the afternoon. we go from midday into the afternoon, a passing shower is possible. the trend is that we dry things out saturday and crank up the
4:48 am
wind gusts 30 to 40 miles per hour on sunday. temperatures in the 50's. it's going to be a blustery feel the second half of the week. antoinette: i'm not ready for that word. olessa: that's the southbound headlines heading into boston. the volume is light, but visibility is poor this morning. give yourself extra travel time. luckily, not seeing a whole lot of construction out there. we head to the maps. heading out the door into boston, you're in good shape. route 3 as well. your trip on the pike only about 15 minutes eastbound 495 to 128. north of town, you're in good shape. so far, we're expecting tom brady to -- trains and buses and start on time this morning. doug: only on 5, dramatic video as boston police save a man who
4:49 am
an officer drew his gun on a suspect that tried to ram his cruiser. this happening in chinatown yesterday. moments later, the driver in that s.u.v. is seen screaming and thrashing. when police pull him out of the vehicle, he's slumped on the pavement. one officer holds his head, the other grabs narcan. it took two full doses of that lifesaving drug to bring that man back. antoinette: boston children's hospital gets the okay to expand but at a high emotional cost. the prouty garden, which has been a haven for patients and their families for decades, will be lost. the $1 billion expansion approved by the state public health council will put an 11-story building where that garden sits. >> our family is not going to have a place to go any longer to remember david and his life and his courage and his bravery. >> we have said over and over again that the prouty gardens is a loss to all of us, but the
4:50 am
the staff is first and foremost. antoinette: a new greenspace will be created as part of the project. doug: a minor snag for general electric as it continues the process of moving its headquarters to boston. yesterday the boston planning and development agency canceled a key vote after concerns it may have violated the open meeting law. anti-g.e. activists complain that the meeting agenda was behind a glass case in the lobby of city hall and some pages could not be read. the vote will likely be rescheduled in two to three weeks. checking the markets, asian stocks tumbled after earnings reports from some of the world's biggest companies. u.s. stock futures are trending lower. investors are keeping a close eye on new earnings reports. antoinette: trending stories this morning, the los angeles
